Commercial property litigation
Commercial property litigation is the area of law dealing with commercial property related disputes. Commercial property is essentially property used for business or office purposes, and not for residential use.
Commercial property litigation often involves complex areas of law and it is essential to seek commercial and correct advice at the earliest opportunity should a dispute arise. Court proceedings can be expensive and time-consuming and an effective commercial property litigation solicitor may be able to help you obtain a resolution or achieve your objectives without the need for court proceedings.
The following are examples of disputes that arise often in the context of commercial property litigation:
- Where commercial tenants are entitled to renew their lease at the end of the term of the lease on the same terms subject to reasonable modernisation, there may be a dispute as to renewal terms or the commercial landlord may provide grounds to oppose the renewal lease
- There may be breaches of a covenant to repair a building in the lease. The landlord may serve what is known as "schedule of dilapidations" requiring the breach to be remedied within a certain time frame
- Eviction of squatters
- Disputes relating to access to the property/ rights of way
- Commercial rent and service charge recovery
Commercial property litigation law attempts to strike a balance between the interests of both the landlord and the tenant. If you find yourself subject to such a dispute, there is legal protection and various remedies available.
